8 THINGS YOU PROBABLY SHARE WITH OTHERS THAT YOU SHOULDN'T


So guys, you may or may not know these personal stuff you shouldn't share with anyone. My close friends know that I get irritated easily when some of my personal stuff are manhandled.



When it comes to my toiletries, I hardly share too(like my soap, and bathing sponge). Sometimes when I visit my friends, and I prolly forgot my sponge, they'll just be like 'let's share mine', and I'll be like Ewww, I'll rather shower without sponge. Well, I wasn't wrong after all 'cause I just learned some personal stuff you shouldn't share with anyone. Wanna learn too? Let's get started.




1. SOAP BARS 

Arrgghh, I just hate when soap bars are messy. Well, do you know that after each bath, the bar is covered with various organisms from your body, ranging from the harmless ones to serious ones called pathogens. It's even worse when the soap is in a wet dish because moisture makes it easier for bacteria, fungi,and viruses to grow. As a result, community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus(CA-MRSA)--a bacteria that causes serious infections may occur.




2. DRINKS AND CUPS 

Sharing same cup and water bottle with a friend leads to saliva swapping which isn't a very good thing. The germs that cause strep throat, colds, herpes, mono, mumps, and even meningitis can all be exchanged through saliva.



3. NAIL CLIPPERS 

Clippers pose a risk because they're used where fungus hide out on your fingers, toes, and soles of your feet. Sharing them could lead to nail fungus or even types of Human papillomavirus infection that cause plantar warts.


4. TOOTHBRUSHES 

Do people actually do this? I mean share toothbrushes? *covers face* Please this is a NO. Always have extra toothbrushes for visitors in your house. According to the CDC, you can get infections from those bristles, if there's any small amount of bleeding.



5. HAIR CLIPPERS 

Yo, everyone knows this already, right? Any small cut that leads to bleeding can actually lead to infections like HIV. It's better to get your own personal clipper than share. But if you must use the ones in barbing salons, please ensure your barber sterilizes them first.



6. EARRINGS 

When you poke an earring through your ear, you may make a little break in the skin, allowing viruses from the previous wearer to enter, and this could lead to ear infections. I guess most females are used to sharing earrings, but this is a no.


7. MAKEUP AND MAKEUP BRUSHES 

Hopefully when my friends read this, they'll understand why I'm skeptical about sharing my makeup brushes, beauty blender, lipsticks, etc. Not like I don't trust any of y'all though;*winks* You should never share your lipstick or lip gloss. Virus gets mixed with the mouth's mucous membrane and can easily be transmitted.



8. EARPHONES 

I swear this is one of my personal stuff I hate sharing, the most. There was this time I gave someone my earphone, and when he returned it, there was earwax on it. That was the day I decided never to give it out again. Every person has a unique bacterial flora in earwax and when you share your earphones with your friend, this balance gets disrupted. You can also provoke an ear infection. Okay, just imagine cleaning your ear with cotton bud, and passing it to your friend to use. I know right!


PLEASE KINDLY SHARE
